Voith Hydro has received an order worth about US$40 million to supply equipment for the 636-MW Upper Kelekoy hydropower project on Turkey's Murat River.

Voith said it will provide three 202 MW Francis hydro turbines and associated equipment for the Upper Kelekoy (also spelled "Kalekoy") project, which is being developed by a joint venture between Cengiz and Ozaltin called Kalehan Enerji.

The project is part of a cascade comprised of four plants. Voith is also supplying equipment for the 560-MW Beyhan 1, which is located downstream.

The company said Turkey represents a "highly promising hydropower market", with an estimated cumulative capacity of 40,000 MW still to be developed and nearly 50 new hydroelectric plants installed through the first half of 2013.
